  1. I have used apple juice as an adequate substitute in other recipes, though not the same flavour as the real thing, for sure. I have not used either in bread. Since you don't know what it would taste like otherwise, if it were me I would try it with the fruit juice.
  2. I watched. I agree with their overall analysis that the industry needs some measure of oversight. Our cars can drive very fast. We need laws to keep ourselves safe. Similarly our kids have legal driving ages and learning permits. There should be laws that young people have "tethered" devices to a guardian's oversight until a certain age. I realize that won't solve everything (we still have car accidents, young people statistically higher), but the laws/taxes/what-have-you are lagging and unfortunately seem necessary. ETA: If I had to pay for SM, I'm not sure I would, or how that might
  3. IIRC, I loved the 2015 one, watched it many times. This one is at least on par. Fabulous! Thanks for sharing.
  4. I've taken a break from PT exercises. Hip bursitis is quite improved - new mattress really, really helps. Last child at home, 20yo ds, is off to trade school for 6 weeks, so I've got daily dog duty. My jog 1km/walk 1km is now 5 days a week. So far so good!
  5. To my amateur eye it looks like it may be more device-friendly. Rats. I was going to share an apple-cherry tomato chutney recipe.
  6. I googled 'John Muir Trail guided hike' and several companies popped up. Not sure about covid or price, but something for the future maybe.
  7. Depending on snow load, think about your roof and coop access. Also keeping water open.
  8. I see this Falwell thing keeps growing. My reference was only to the first photo, and sorry but a pregnant lady and a middle aged dude comparing bellies in a photo should hardly be a scandal. But yeah, so often that stuff is just the tip of the iceberg. Not surprising, sadly. As for a private university making use of protocols and achieving some success: Sorry to interrupt with even some faint optimism. Please carry on, I swear not to mention anything positive in this thread henceforward.
  9. That sounds so cold!! We have a lovely swim from the dock to the island and back, but we don't actually go onto the island unless boating or kayaking, because leeches. Once it starts getting weedy, we turn around and head back, lol.
  10. I did get a lake swim in with a friend last weekend. We went at 9am, still warmish enough and only a few folks around. Sat in the sun on the wooden dock after for a bit catching up, left about 10:30am just as it was starting to get busy. Still plodding away with physio exercises, tacking on some feel-good yoga poses afterwards. Once a week jog 1km/walk 1km still happening. Hope for more time for more things this weekend.

  12. Could you go visit alone? A quick 2-3 day getaway before September? Your family dynamic has changed since the kids were younger. Your dh is busy at work, your teens, as is typical, have greater time commitments. She will almost certainly miss the grandkids, and have to hold out for another time, but a girls' weekend, in the midst of a pandemic, might be better than nothing. You would be communicating your concern for her well-being and seeing her in person might dispel any worries you're carrying. You'd almost certainly have some peace of mind afterwards?
